British Video

Here's a nice i-MiEV impressions video by a cute blonde (Maddie Moate) who thinks it's a "nifty little car" that is quick and fun to drive. She dwells a bit on the car's cost advantage, allowing how much she resents going to the petrol station. Unlike most 'reviewers', I thought she very nicely handled the range issue, simply recognizing that pre-planning is part of the game and using the cellphone analogy. She's quite positive about the i-MiEV, and ended up by saying didn't want to give it back - smart girl! :D

We can rule this site out:

When you take the price drop of the 2014 model, the options and trim levels of the 2012, and a pictures of a pre-production unit and wheels I really want that aren't available in the US, you're just cherrypicking details. As far as I know, only pre-production/promo i-MiEVs didn't have body-color mirrors. The biggest giveaway, this line:

This car should sold in huge numbers throughout the country due to its high availability and low price.

That happened, didn't it? :lol: :evil:

I'll give this though, it is a positive review, which the OP's video review sounds like it is. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet.
